PEEEACE. 



The following tunes were written, not for a collection, but from time to time, during 
the past thirty-five years, as occasion seemed to arise. Thirty years ago the Church 
Hymnal was a very different thing from that now in use. It consisted of some one hun- 
dred and twenty-four "Selections" (from Tate and Brady,) or as Selection Ninety-seven 
was cut up into twenty-two parts, the number was virtually one hundred and forty-five; 
and two hundred and twelve Hymns; in all three hundred and fifty-seven hymns. The 
great bulk of these were either Common, Long, or Short Metre hymns; and the greater 
number of tunes in use had necessarily to be confined to these Metres. They may be 
considered as the old church Metres. As an index of what tunes were then in use in the 
Church, the "Tune Book" put out in 1859 by a Committee appointed by the House of 
Bishops, contained one hundred and sixty-nine Tunes all told, of which fifty-one were 
C. M. ; forty, L. M. ; nineteen, S. M. ; and twenty were 7s, or 8, 7s, leaving thirty-nine 
tunes only for all other Metres. 

Since 1860 the character of the hymns authorized and used in the Church has greatly 
changed. Devout servants of God have been moved to write hymns and spiritual songs, 
by no means confining themselves to these old metres; hymns which have won a place 
amongst those in use throughout the Church wherever the English tongue is known. 
These hymns came not altogether, but one by one, as gifted men were moved. As they 
came, and were found to be useful in the public worship of the church, appropriate music 
was required, and so there has grown up within the past quarter of a century a number of 
hymn tune writers who have done what they felt moved to do to supply this want; Dykes and 
Smart and Hopkins and Stainer and Barnby and others. To-day the best known, and the 
most generally sung, and the all but universally favorite hymns in use in our Church, are 
the new hymns, set to the new music. 

It may seem presumptuous to call attention to such names in connection with the 
offering to the Church of the tunes contained in this little book. The only point intended 
to be made is this, that as these hymns from time to time came under the notice of the 
present writer, and not always accompanied with music suitable in itself, or suited to he 
capacity of the choirs under his care, he has been moved to do what he could in the way of 
translating devout words into devout music; and these hymn tunes are now offered 
to the Church for such use as they may be fitted for. As with the words of hymns, so 
with the music, natural selection determines much. The fittest are those that survive, 
and this little collection is only " a further contribution to the hymnody of the church, ' 
thrown out in the hope that possibly one here and one there of the tunes may be found

PREFACE. 

worthy of survival, and be an aid in the devotions of the congregation. They are by no 
means all of them new, some having been written many years ago, and having found 
their way into print, and into use in some few churches. The greater part, however, appear 
for the first time in print. 

A word in regard to the manner of singing hymn tunes, thrown out also, for what it is 
worth, to Choir masters and Organists. There is one point which those having charge of our 
choirs do not seem always to understand, or else fail to carry out. Apart from the different 
time in which hymns should be sung, and the kind of spirit to be thrown into them, our 
hymns ( and tunes ) would seem naturally to divide themselves into two general classes. The 
one is that of the old Chorale; e. g., Old Hundred, Luther's Hymn, St. Ann's, Tallis' Canon, 
etc. In these hymns, as a general rule, each line of the words is a distinct phrase, ending 
on an accented syllable, and not running on quickly into the following line, and each line 
of the music is even more distinctly a separate phrase, complete in itself both in harmony 
and in rhythm. Consequently all such tunes may, and should, be sung so as to bring out this 
feature. Each line should be brought out emphatically, with a solemn dignity and fulness ; 
and a pause made upon the last note, not after it, but by a full sustaining of the note to 
about double its natural time. To dwell longer than this is unnecessary, and would soon 
become tedious, and mar the proper effect. Now it is not difficult to know what hymns 
fall into this class and require this treatment. Most C. M., L. M. and S. M. hymns are 
such; and generally * such as end each line with an accented syllable. 

The other class consists of hymns of the more modern school, in which the rhythm 
seems to flow on naturally from one line to another, generally in pairs; so that a pause, 
or dwelling upon a final note would be out of place except at the end of each second line. 
As a type of this class take" The Church's One Foundation," or "Jerusalem the Golden." It 
will be seen at once that both words and music seem to call for a steady movement until 
the close of the second line is reached. But at the end of these second lines you will find 
the music has a long note, generally a dotted semibreve equal to three of the ordinary 
notes of the line; and this is long enough, and should not be exceeded, as too often is done; 
the tendency in choir organists being to shorten short notes, and lengthen long notes. 

It is suggested, therefore, that as a general rule, in Hymns of the Chorale class each 
line should be closed with a (not too great) prolonging and swelling out of the last note; 
while Hymns not belonging to this class should be sung through in fairly strict time; not 
rigidly exact, and without expression; but without unnecessary breaking of the rhythm. 

In the hope that some things in this book may prove useful and edifying in the mu- 
sical worship of the Church, it is sent forth to struggle for the existence of its fittest 
parts. 

Baltimore, Md., Lent, 1891. J. S. B. HODGES. 

* " Generally," because there will be exceptions ; as for example in the verse 

" The Lord shall come, and He will not 
Keep silence, but speak out. " 
But the rule will generally hold good.

1 Hark ! a thrilling voice is sounding, 

" Christ is nigh," it seems to say; 
" Cast away the dreams of darkness, 
ye children of the day ! " 

2 Wakened by the solemn warning, 

Let the earth-bound soul arise; 
Christ, her Sun, all ill dispelling, 
Shines upon the morning skies. 



3 Lo ! the Lamb, so long expected, 

Comes with pardon down from heaven ; 
Let us haste, with tears of sorrow, 
One and all to be forgiven. 

4 That, when next He comes with glory, 

And the world is wrapped in fear, 
With His mercy He may shield us, 
And with words of love draw near. 



5 Honor, glory, might, and blessing, 
To the Father, and the Son, 
With the Everlasting Spirit, 
While eternal ages run. Amex.

D. C. M. 




Once more, Lord, Thy sign shall be 

Upon the heavens displayed, 
And earth and its inhabitants 

Be terribly afraid : 
For, not in weakness clad, thou com'st, 

Our woes, our sins to bear, 
But girt with all Thy Father's might, 

His judgment to declare. 
The terrors of that awful day, 

Oh, who can understand ? 
Or who abide, when Thou in wrath 

Shalt lift Thy holy hand ? 



(8) 



The earth shall quake, the sea shall roar 

The sun in heaven grow pale ; 
But Thou hast sworn,and wilt not change 

Thy faithful shall not fail. 
Then grant us, Saviour, so to pass 

Our time in trembling here, 
That when upon the clouds of heaven 

Thy glory shall appear, 
Uplifting high our joyful heads, 

In triumph we may rise, 
And enter, with Thine angel train, 

Thy palace in the skies.

1 Jesus, Thou art standing 
Outside the fast-closed door, 

In lowly patience waiting 
To pass the threshold o'er: 

We bear the name of Christians, 
His name and sign we bear; 

shame, thrice shame upon us, 
To keep Him standing there. 

2 Jesus, Thou art knocking; 
And lo! that hand is scarr'd, 

And thorns Thy brow encircle, 
And tears Thy face have marr'd: 



love that passeth knowledge, 

So patiently to wait! 
sin that hath no equal, 

So fast to bar the gate! 

3 Jesus, Thou art pleading 

In accents meek and low, 
" I died for you, My children, 

And "will ye treat Me so ? " 
Lord, with shame and sorrow 

We open now the door; 
Dear Saviour, enter, enter, 

And leave us nevermore.

Hymn No. 22. 



C. M. D. 





1 It came upon the midnight clear, 

That glorious song of old, 
From angels bending near the earth 

To touch their harps of gold ; 
Peace on the earth, good-will to men, 

From heaven's all-gracious King ; 
The world in solemn stillness lay 

To hear the angels sing. 



2 Still through the cloven skies they come, 

With peaceful wings unfurl'd ; 
And still their heavenly music floats 

O'er all the weary world : 
Above its sad and lowly plains 

They bend on hovering wing, 
And ever o'er its Babel sounds 

The blessed angels sing. 

(10) 



3 ye beneath life's crushing load, 

Whose forms are bending low, 
Who toil along the climbing way 

With painful steps and slow ! 
Look now, for glad and golden hours 

Come swiftly on the wing ; 
O rest beside the weary road, 

And hear the angels sing. 



4 For lo, the days are hastening on, 

By prophets seen of old, 
When with the ever-circling years 

Shall come the time foretold, 
When the new heaven and earth shall own 

The Prince of Peace their King, 
And the whole world send back the song 

Which now the angels sing.

1 Hark ! the herald angels sing 
Glory to the new-born King ; 
Peace on earth, and mercy mild, 
God and sinners reconciled ! 

2 Joyful, all ye nations, rise, 
Join the triumph of the skies ; 
With the angelic host proclaim, 
Christ is born in Bethlehem ! 

3 Christ, by highest heaven adored 
Christ, the everlasting Lord ; 



Late in time behold Him come, 
Offspring of the Virgin's womb : 

4 Veil'd in flesh the Godhead see ; 
Hail the incarnate Deity, 
Pleased as Man with men to dwell 
Jesus, our Emmanuel ! 

5 Risen with healing in His wings, 
Light and life to all He brings. 
Hail, the Sun of Righteousness ! 
Hail, the heaven-born Prince of Peace !

Watching long in hope and fear, 

Suddenly the Lord, descending, 
In His temple shall appear.

1 Lord, in this Thy mercy's day, 
Ere the time shall pass away, 
On our knees we fall and pray. 

2 Holy Jesu, grant us tears, 
Fill us with heart-searching fears, 
Ere the hour of doom appears. 

3 Lord, on us Thy Spirit pour, 
Kneeling lowly at Thy door, 
Ere it close for evermore. 



4 By Thy night of agony, 
By Thy supplicating cry, 
By Thy willingness to die, 

5 By Thy tears of bitter woe 
For Jerusalem below, 

Let us not Thy love forego. 

6 Judge and Saviour of our race, 
When we see Thee face to face, 
Grant us neath Thy wings a place. 



7 On Thy love we rest alone, 

And that love will then be known, 
By the pardoned round Thy throne.

1 A few more vears shall roll, 
A few more seasons come, 

And we shall be with those that rest, 
Asleep within the tomb: 
Then, my Lord, prepare 
My soul for that great day; 

wash me in Thy precious blood, 
And take my sins away. 

2 A few more suns shall set 
O'er these dark hills of tune, 

And we shall be where suns are not, 
A far serener clime: 
Then, my Lord, prepare 
My soul for that blest day: 

wash me in Thy precious blood, 
And take my sins away. 

3 A few more storms shall beat 
On this wild rocky shore, 

And we shall be where tempests cease, 
And surges swell no more: 
Then, my Lord, prepare 
Mj soul for that calm day; 

wash me in Thy precious blood, 
And take my sins away. 

4 A few more struggles here, 
A few more partings o'er, 

A few more toils, a few more tears, 
And we shall weep no more: 
Then, my Lord, prepare 
My soul for that bright day; 

wash me in Thy precious blood, 
And take my sins away. 

5 'Tis but a little while 
And He shall come again, 

TVho died that we might live, who lives 

That we with Him may reign: 
Then. my Lord, prepare, 
My soul for that glad day: 
wash me in Thy precious blood, 

And take my sins away. Amen.

1 Behold the Lamb of God! 
Thou for sinners slain, 
Let it not be in vain 

That Thou hast died; 
Thee for my Saviour let me take, 
My only refuge let me make 

Thy pierced side. 



3 Behold the Lamb of God! 
All hail, incarnate Word, 
Thou everlasting Lord, 

Saviour most blest! 
Fill us with love that never faints, 
Grant us with all Thy blessed saints 

Eternal rest. 



2 Behold the Lamb of God! 

Into the sacred flood 

Of Thy most precious blood 

My soul I cast; 
Wash me and make me clean within, 
And keep me pure from every sin, 
Till life be passed. 

This tune was written by request, especially for the third verse, as a Eucharistic Hymn 

(16) 



4 Behold the Lamb of God! 
Worthy is He alone, 
That sitteth on the throne 

Of God above; 
One with the Ancient of all days, 
One with the Comforter in praise, 

All Light and Love.

1 Come see the place where Jesus lay, 
And hear angelic watchers say, 

4i He lives, Who once was slain : 
Why seek the living 'midst the dead? 
Remember how t e Saviour said 

That He would rise again." 

2 O joyful sound ! O glorious hour, 
When by His own Almighty power 

He rose, and left the grave ! 
Now let our songs His triumph tell, 
Who burst the bands of death and hell, 

And ever lives to save. 



The First-begotten of the dead, 
For us He rose, our glorious Head, 

Immortal life to bring ; 
What though the saints like Him shall die, 
They share their Leader's victory, 

And triumph with their King. 

No more they tremble at the grave, 
For Jesus will their spirits save, 

And raise their slumbering dust : 
O risen Lord, in Thee we live, 
To Thee our ransomed souls we give, 

To Thee our bodies trust. Amen.

1 We give immortal praise 

To God the Father's love, 
For all our comforts here, 

And all our hopes above: 
He sent His own Eternal Son 
To die for sins that man had done. 

2 To God the Son belongs 

Immortal glory too, 
Who saved us by His blood 

From everlasting woe: 
And now He lives, and now He reigns, 
And sees the fruit of all His pains. 



I 

3 To God the Spirit, praise 

And endless worship give, 
Whose new-creating power 

Makes the dead sinner live: 
His work completes the great design, 
And fills the soul with joy divine. 

4 Almighty God, to Thee 

Be endless honors done; 
The Sacred Persons Three, 
The Godhead only one; 
Where reason fails with all her powers, 
There faith prevails, and love adores. 

Amen

That sinks exhausted in the summer's chase, 
So pants my soul for Thee, great King of kings, 
So thirsts to reach Thy sacred dwelling place. 

2 Lord, Thy sure mercies, ever in my sight, 

My heart shall gladden through the tedious day; 
And 'midst the dark and gloomy shades of night, 
To Thee, my God, I '11 tune the grateful lay. 

3 Why faint, my soul ? why doubt Jehovah's aid ? 

Thy God the God of mercy still shall prove ; 
Within His courts thy thanks shall yet be paid, 
Unquestion'd be His faithfulness and love.

Day of rest and gladness, 

day of joy aud light, 
O balm of care and sadness, 

Most beautiful, most bright; 
On thee, the high and lowly, 

Through ages joiu'd in tune, 
Sing, Holy, Holy, Holy, 

To the great God Triune. 
On thee, at the creation, 

The light first had its birth ; 
On thee, for our salvation, 

Christ rose from depths of earth 
On thee, our Lord victorious, 

The Spirit sent from heaven, 
And thus on thee, most glorious, 

A triple light was given. 
Thou art a port protected 

From storms that round us rise; 
A garden intersected 

With streams of Paradise; 



(27) 



Thou art a cooling fountain 

In life's dry dreary sand; 
From thee, like Pisgah's mountain, 

We view our promised laud. 
To-day on weary nations 

The heavenly manna falls; 
To holy convocations 

The silver trumpet calls, 
Where Gospel light is glowing 

With pure and radiant beams, 
And living water flowing 

With soul-refreshing streams. 
New graces ever gaining 

From this our day of rest, 
We reach the rest remaining, 

To spirits of the blest; 
To Holy Ghost be praises 

To Father, and to Son, 
The Church her voice upraises 

To Thee, Blest Three in One. Amen.

With one accord our parting hymn of praise ; 
We stand to bless Thee ere our worship cease, 
Then, lowly kneeling, wait Thy word of peace. 

2 Grant us Thy peace upon our homeward way ; 
With Thee began, with Thee shall end the day ; 
Guard Thou the lips from sin, the hearts from shame, 
That in this house have called upon Thy Name. 

3 Grant us Thy peace, Lord, thro' the coming night, 
Turn Thou for us its darkness into light ; 

From harm and danger keep Thy children free, 
For dark and light are both alike to Thee.

Our balm in sorrow, and our stay in strife ; 
Then, when Thy voice shall bid our conflict cease,

1 The Son of God goes forth to war, 

A kingly crown to gain; 
His blood-red banner streams afar: 

Who follows in His train ? 
Who best can drink His cup of woe, 

Triumphant over pain, 
Who patient bear His cross below — 

He follows in His train. 

2 The martyr first whose eagle eye 

Could pierce beyond the grave, 
Who saw his Master in the sky, 

And called on Him to save: 
Like Him, with pardon on His tongue, 

In midst of mortal pain, 
He pray'd for them that did the wrong 

Who follows in His train ? 
The first four lines of this tune may be sung in 



3 A glorious band, the chosen few, 

On whom the Spirit came: [knew, 
Twelve valiant saints, their hope they 

And mock'd the cross and flame: 
They met the tyrant's brandish'd steel, 

The lion's gory mane; 
They bow'd their necks the death to feel: 

Who follows in their train ? 

4 A noble army, men and boys, 

The matron and the maid, 
Around the Saviour's throne rejoice, 

In robes of light array 'd: 
They climb'd the steep ascent of heaven 
Through peril, toil, and pain: 
: O God! to us may grace be given 
To follow in their train! Amen.

Hark! the sound of holy voices, 

Chanting o'er the crystal sea, 
Alleluia, Alleluia, 

Alleluia, Lord to Thee; 
Multitude, which none can number, 4 

Like the stars in glory stands, 
Clothed in white apparel, holding 

Palms of victory in their hands. 
Patriarch, and holy Prophet, 

Who prepared the way of Christ, 
King, Apostle, Saint, Confessor, 

Martyr and Evangelist, 
Saintly maiden, godly matron, 5 

Widows who have watched to prayer, 
Joined in holy concert singing, 

To the Lord of all, are there. 
They have come from tribulation, 

And have wash'd their robes in blood, 
Wash'd them in the blood of Jesus; 

Tried they were, and firm they stood; (30) 



Mock'd, imprison'd, stoned, tormented, 

Sawn asunder, slain with sword, 
They have conquer'd death and Satan 

By the might of Christ the Lord. 
Marching with Thy cross their banner, 

They have triumph'd, following 
Thee, the Captain of Salvation, 

Thee, their Saviour and their King; 
Gladly, Lord, with Thee they sunerVl; 

Gladly, Lord, with Thee they died; 
And by death to life immortal 

They were born and glorified. 
Now they reign in heavenly glory, 

Now they walk in golden light, 
Now they drink, as from a river, 

Holy bliss and infinite; 
Love and peace they taste for ever, 

And all truth and knowledge see 
In the beatific vision 

Of the blessed Trinity. Amen*.

Marching as to war, 
With the cross of Jesus 

Going on before. 
Christ the royal Master, 
Leads against the foe; 
Forward into battle, 
See, His banners go. 

Onward, Christian soldiers, 

Marching as to war, 
"With the cross of Jesus 
Going on before. 

2 At the sign of triumph 

Satan's host doth flee; 
On, then, Christian soldiers, 

On to victory. 
Hell's foundations quiver 

At the shout of praise; 
Brothers, lift your voices, 

Loud your anthems raise. 

3 Like a mighty army 

Moves the Church of God; 



Brothers, we are treading 
Where the saints have trod; 

We are not divided, 
All one body we, 

One in hope and doctrine, 
One in charity. 

Crowns and thrones may perish, 

Kingdoms rise and wane, 
But the Church of Jesus 

Constant will remain; 
Gates of hell can never 

'Gainst that Church prevail; 
We have Christ's own promise, 

And that cannot fail. 

Onward, then, ye people, 

Join our happy throng, 
Blend with ours your voices 

In the triumph-song; 
Glory, laud, and honor, 

Unto Christ the King; 
Thus through countless ages 

Men and angels sing. Amen.

Thou, Lamb of Calvary, 

Saviour divine! 
Now hear me while I pray; 
Take all my guilt away; 
Oh, let me from this day 

Be wholly Thine. 

May Thy rich grace impart 
Strength to my fainting heart, 

My zeal inspire: 
As Thou hast died for me, 
Oh, may my love to Thee 
Pure, warm, and changeless be, 

A living fire. 



While life's dark maze I tread, 
And griefs around me spread, 

Be Thou my guide; 
Bid darkness turn to day; 
Wipe sorrow's tears away, 
Nor let me ever stray 

From Thee aside. 

When ends life's transient dream, 
When death's cold sullen stream 

Shall o'er me roll, 
Blest Saviour, then in love, 
Fear and distrust remove; 
Oh, bear me safe above, 

A ransom'd soul. Amen.

Far from my home in life's rough way,

Let me be still and murmur not, 

Or breathe the prayer divinely taught,

For friends beloved no longer nigh, 
Submissive would I still reply, 

"Thy will be done."

What most I prize, it ne'er was mine; 
I only yield Thee what is Thine.

All that now makes it hard to say;

Christ, whose glory fills the skies, 
Christ, the true, the only Light ! 

Sun of Righteousness, arise, 

Triumph o'er the shades of night ! 

Day-spring from on high, be near - 

Day-star in my heart appear ! 



Dark and cheerless is the morn 
Unaccompanied by Thee ; 



Joyless is the day's return 

Till thy mercy's beams I see ; 
Till they inward light impart. 
Glad my eyes, and warm my heart. 

3 

Visit then this soul of mine, 

Pierce the gloom of sin and grief; 

Fill me. Radiancy divine, 
Scatter all my unbelief; 

More and more Thyself display, 

Shining to the perfect day.

1 Abide with me; fast falls the eventide; 

The darkness deepens; Lord, with me abide; 
When other helpers fail, and comforts flee, 
Help of the helpless, abide with me. 

2 Swift to its close ebbs out life's little day; 
Earth's joys grow dim, its glories pass away; 
Change and decay in all around I see; 

Thou who chaugest not, abide with me. 

3 I need Thy presence every passing hour; 

What but Thy grace can foil the tempter's power ? 
Who like Thyself my guide and stay can be? 
Through cloud and sunshine, Lord, abide with me. 

4 I fear no foe with Thee at hand to bless: 
Ills have no weight, and tears no bitterness. 
Where is death's sting, where, grave, thy victory ? 

1 triumph still, if Thou abide with me. 

5 Hold Thou Thy Cross before my closing eyes; 
Shine through the gloom, and point me to the skies: 
Heaven's morning breaks, and earth's vain shadows flee; 
In life, in death, Lord abide with me. Amen*.

1 The shadows of the evening hours 

Fall from the darkening sky, 
Upon the fragrance of the flowers 
The dews of evening lie ; 

2 Before Thy throne, O Lord of heaven, 

We kneel at close of day ; 
Look on Thy children from on high, 
And hear us while we pray. 

3 The sorrows of Thy servants, Lord, 

O do not Thou despise, 
But let the incense of our prayers 
Before Thy mercy rise ; 

4 The brightness of the coming night 

L^pon the darkness rolls ; 
With hopes of future glory chase 
The shadows ou our souls. 



5 Slowly the rays of daylight fade ; 
So fade within our heart 

The hopes in earthly love and joy, 
That one by one depart ; 

6 Slowly the bright stars, one by one ; 
Within the heavens shine : — 

Give us,0 Lord, fresh hopes in heaven, 
And trust in things divine. 

7 Let peace, O Lord ! Thy peace, O God ! 
Upon our souls descend, 

From midnight fears and perils, Thou 
Our trembling hearts defend : 

8 Give us a respite from our toil, 
Calm and subdue our woes ; 

Through the long day we suffer, Lord, 
give us now repose !

Thou Shepherd and Guardian of thine, 
My all to Thy covenant care, 
I, sleeping or waking, resign. 

2 If Thou art my shield and my sun, 

The night is no darkness to me; 
And, fast as my minutes roll on, 
They bring me but nearer to Thee. 

3 A sovereign protector I have, 

Unseen, yet forever at hand; 
Unchangeably faithful to save, 
Almighty to rule and command. 

4 His smiles and His comforts abound, 

His grace, as the dew shall descend; 
And walls of salvation surround 
The soul He delights to defend.

1 The sun is sinking fast, 

The daylight dies; 
Let love awake, and pay 
Her evening sacrifice. 

2 As Christ upon the cross 

His Head inclined, 
And to His Father's hands 
His parting soul resigned; 

3 So now herself my soul 

Would wholly give 
Into His sacred charge, 
In Whom all spirits live; 



4 So now beneath His eye 

Would calmly rest, 
Without a wish or thought 
Abiding in the breast; 

5 Save that His will be done, 

Whate'er betide; 
Dead to herself, and dead 
In Him to all beside. 

6 Thus would I live, yet now 

Not I, but He 
In all His power and love 
Henceforth alive in me. 



One Sacred Trinity! 

One Lord Divine! 
May I be ever His, 

And He forever mine.

Eternal Light of light, be with us now: assail, 

Where Thou art present darkness cannot be: And earthly hopes and human succours fail: 

Midnight is glorious noon, Lord, with When all is dark may we behold Thee nigh, 

Thee. And hear Thy voice — "Fear not for it is I." 

2 Our changeful lives are ebbing to an end, 

Onward to darkness and to death we tend: 4 The weary world is mouldering to decay, 

O Conqueror of the grave, be Thou our Its glories wane, its pageants fade away; 

guide, In that last sunset when the stars shall fall, 

Be Thou our light in death's dark eventide; May we arise awaken'd by Thy call, 

Then in our mortal hour will be no gloom, With Thee, Lord, for ever to abide 

No sting in death, no terror in the tomb. In that blest day which has no eventide.

Let me hide myself in Thee ; 

Let the water and the blood, 

From Thy riven side which flow'd, 

Be of sin the double cure, 

Cleanse me from its guilt and power. 

Not the labors of my hands 
Can fulfil Thy law's demands; 
Could my zeal no respite know, 
Could my tears forever flow, 
All for sin could not atone, 
Thou must save, and Thou alone. 



Nothing in my hand I bring; 
Simply to Thy cross I cling; 
Naked, come to Thee for dress; 
Helpless, look to Thee, for grace; 
Foul, I to the fountain fly; 
Wash me, Saviour, or 1 die. 

While I draw this fleeting breath, 
When my eyelids close in death, 
When I soar through tracts unknown,

In buoyant exultation, through the sky, 

And reach the heavenly shore. 
Elijah's chariot bringing 

The homeward traveller there, 
Glad troops of angels winging,

At last released, though late,

And life's long weary way;

Out through the glorious 



To greet my wondering eyes

open 



The hosts of Christ's elected, 

The jewels that he bears 
In his own crown, selected 

To wipe away my tears. 
Of prophets great, and patriarch's high, 
a band 

That once has borne the cross, 
With all the company that won that laud, 

By counting gain for loss, 
Xow float in freedom's lightness, 

From tyrant's chains set free; 
And shine like suns in brightness, 

Arraved to welcome me. 



One more at last arrived they welcome 
there, 

To beauteous Paradise, [bear, 

Where sense can scarce its full fruition 

Or tongue for praise suffice; 
Glad alleluias ringing, 

With rapturous rebound, 
And rich hosannas singing 

Eternity's long round. 
Unuumber'd choirs before the Lamb's 
high throne 

There shout the jubilee, [tone, 

With loud resounding peal and sweeter 

Iu blissful ecstacy; 
A hundred thousand voices, 

Take up the wondrous song, 
Eternity rejoices 

God's praises to prolong. Amen.

On Thy children gathered here; 
May they all Thy name confessing, 
Be to Thee for ever dear.

Didst vouchsafe a child to be, 
Guide their steps,and help their weakness 
Bless and make them like to Thee

Bear Thy Lambs, when they are weary, 

In Thine arms, and at Thy breast ; 
Through life's desert, dry and dreary, 

Bring them to Thy heavenly rest.

May they with Thy glory shine, 
And immortal bliss inherit, 

And for evermore be Thine. Amen.

Love is weak and thinks no wrong, 
Love than death itself more strong; 

Therefore give us Love.

Melting in the light of day; 
Love will ever with us stay; 

Therefore give us love.

Hope be emptied in delight; 

Love in heaven will shine more bright; 
Therefore give us Love. 

5 Faith and Hope and Love we see 
Joining hand in hand agree; 
But the greatest of the three, 

And the best, is Love.

Of thy gold and silver wing, 
Shed on us, who to Thee sing,

And in death by all forsaken,

Onward, ever onward, 

Journeying o'er the road 
Worn by saints before us, 

Journeying on to God! 
Leaving all behind us, 

May we hasten on, 
Backward never looking 

Till the prize is won.

When the ransomed soul, 
Earthly toils forgetting, 

Finds its promised goal; 
Where in joys unheard of 

Saints with angels sing, 
Never weary raising 

Praises to their King.

And by this food so awful and so sweet, 

Deliver us from every touch of ill. 
In Thine own service make us glad and 

free, 
And grant us never more to part with 
Thee. Amex.

Gracious Saviour, Geutle Shepherd; 

Little ones are dear to Thee : 
Gathered with Thine arms, and carried 

In Thy bosom may we be: 
Sweetly, fondly, safely tended, 

From all want and danger free. 

Tender Shepherd, never leave us 
From Thy fold to go astray; 

By Thy look of love directed, 
May we walk the narrow way; 

Then direct us and protect us, 
Lest we fall an easy prey. 



3 Cleanse our hearts from sinful folly 

In the stream Thy love supplied, 
Mingled stream of blood and water 

Flowing from Thy wounded side; 
And to heavenly pastures lead us 

Where Thine own still waters glide. 

4 Taught to lisp the holy praises 

Which on earth Thy children sing, 
Both with lips and hearts unfeigned 

May we our thank-offerings bring, 
Then with all the saints in glory 

Join to praise our Lord and King.

1 Art thou weary, art thou languid, 

Art thou sore distress'd ? 
" Come to me," saith One, " and coming, 
Be at rest." 

2 Hath He marks to lead me to Him, 

If He be my guide ? 
" In His feet and hands are wound-prints, 
And His side." 

3 Is there diadem, as Monarch, 

That His brow adorns ? 
" Yea, a crown, in very surety, 
But of thorns." 



4 If I find Him, if I follow, 
What His guerdon here ? 
11 Many a sorrow, many a labor. 
Many a tear."

What hath He at last ? 
" Sorrow vanquished, labor ended, 
Jordan passed," 



6 If I ask Him to receive me, 
Will He say me nay ?

Pass away."

Is He sure to bless ? 
" Saints, apostles, prophets, martyrs, 
Answer, 'yes.'"

1 In the pleasant sunny meadows 

Where the buttercups are seen, 
And the daisies' little shadows 
Lie along the green. 

2 Flocks of quiet sheep are feeding, 

Little lambs are playing near; 
For the watchful Shepherd, leading, 
Keeps them safe from harm and fear. 

3 Christians are like sheep, abiding 

In the Church's pasture free: 

Jesus is our Shepherd, guiding, 

And the little lambs are we. 

4 sweet Shepherd, gently lead us, 

Lest we fall or go astray; 
With the bread of heaven feed us. 
That we faint not by the way. 

5 Pasture green and clover blossom 

Are the types of heavenly love: 
Jesus, bear us in Thy bosom, 
Safely to Thy fold above.
